The dynamic behavior of an argon gliding arc discharge has been investigated by means of electrical diagnostics and high-speed photography. Two different arc breakdown regimes are identified: initial breakdown in the narrowest electrode gap and restrike breakdown on the electrode surface. It is also found that the anode and cathode arc roots exhibit different motion behaviors. © 2006 IEEE.
